The words, "Liliata rutilantium te confessorum turma circumdet: iubilantium te virginum chorus excipiat," mean, “May the troop of confessors, glowing like lilies, surround you. May the choir of virgins, jubilant, take you in.” Gifford locates the source of these words in the Prayers for the Dying in the Catholic Layman’s Missal.
